When Losing My Identity

You Are Wonderfully and Beautifully Made” was written because my daughter always asked me “Why does my hair look like this?”  My children are biracial and have features different from my own. I would always tell her, “That’s just the way God made you.”   My favorite Bible chapter is Psalm 139.  It tells me that God knew he needed me on this Earth before I was ever a thought of by my parents.  He wanted me to be here.  He purposed me to do great things on this Earth that other people would benefit from.  He loved me before He created me.  He made me wonderfully and beautifully like no one else in the world.  THIS IS YOU TOO!  There is no one else in this world who is just like you .  You were created on purpose for a purpose. Your purpose is whatever you are passionate about, whatever you love doing that doesn’t seem like work.  He created you to bring Him glory, YOU bring him JOY!  You are his kid!  His baby!  He created you to build His kingdom by showing and telling others about Him.

I know life gets hard.  Sometimes unbearable.  You lose your identity, who you are and who you want to be.  But God never forgets you.  He never stops loving you!  He never stops pursuing you!  He wants to be in your life no matter where you are right now.  He has never left you and He will always be waiting to hear your sweet voice call to him when you pray.  

Dear God, I love you!  I want you to be in my life!  Forgive me of all my sins and come live inside me and help me live for you! In Jesus name, Amen.  

Lord, I pray for the your sweet child who will read this book.  I pray that they will feel your love and know how much you love them.  I pray you bring them peace, comfort, love, grace and mercy.  I pray that whatever they’re going through right now,  they will know you are there and they feel your love and your hugs. I pray that they will reach out to you for help and to say “Thank you.”   Please inspire them to live their life fully to you and to love others.  In Jesus name, Amen.
